Product Details

Perhaps the most elegant of all bathtubs, this Chariot clawfoot offers a large bathing area with a sit up position. It has excellent depth to overflow for a really deep soak.
Our 67ā€ long version of this beautiful Chariot style clawfoot bathtub was inspired by the original Chariot tubs manufactured by Rogeat in Lyon, France around the 1850ā€™s. The original was a little narrow for modern bathing expectations and we make ours a little wider. The additional width does not deflect from the beauty of the original piece.
The 67ā€ version is well sized for larger, taller bathers and also presents the opportunity to be enjoyed by two bathers.
Finishing
This is our Mirror Polished Zinc finish. The cast iron tub is left in its original form as it exits the mold and cleaned of any excess iron scale. We then finish the inside of the tub with thick, bright white enamel before completing the exterior. Onto the raw iron exterior, we apply twelve layers of pure molten zinc.
While still retaining many original cast marks, the zinc is an almost mirror silver raw living finish that may tarnish or darken very slightly over the years. It is very simple to maintain and a wipe with a soft cloth and some soapy water will remove most marks. For more stubborn stains, a soft cloth with some Mothers polish will remove these easily.
